A beautiful girl
dark hair and blue eyes
I have neither, so of course, you’d rather
have her instead

She lost her dad and quit her job
Loved a boy, loved the bottle (perhaps more)
outspoken despite being broken
Stronger heart, stubborn head

Her friends moved far away
the boy forgot to love
She withered and starved, begged to see stars
and not you ever again

Her blue eyes closed
Tiny fingers on a tiny waist
Nothing to save, she cried, and I prayed
To something we don’t believe in

A beautiful girl
dark hair and blue eyes
known to lie, but she’d apologize
but she was never sorry for you

A beautiful girl
dark hair and blue eyes
the one before the one you left me for
Knows you chose me too

Yes, a damn beautiful girl
not a thing like me
but we share a name, and it’s a damn shame
that you tried to turn her ugly
